Description

A riotously funny, emotionally raw New York Times bestselling novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind—whether we like it or not.

The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she's pregnant...

“Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking...[Tropper is] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche.”—USA Today 

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JASON BATEMAN, TINA FEY, JANE FONDA, AND ADAM DRIVER

    Decent read, complex characters however, we not fully fleshed out. Ending leaves something to be desired.

    This was a fun read and I enjoyed the way the story was told. I could've done without all the sex scenes but that's just me. I would recommend this book.

    Really see why this was made into a movie. It had some good laughs and was a quick read. Not a classic, but worth three stars from an entertainment perspective.

    Quite simply the funniest book I have ever read. When you sit alone in a room and are laughing out loud, you are either a certifiable lunatic or in the midst of a world full of flawed,at times awful but always hilarious characters. Read and enjoy
  • Love, love, love it!!!!

    One of my favourite books. JT has a similar gift to David Sedaris in finding the humour in the ordinary and through writing about it makes it extraordinary. This movie is the one (other than Hobbit) that I have anticipated most. If you have not read this book, READ IT
  • Really good

    I travel a lot and this book was really good. After a five hour flight I didn't want to turn off my iPad in preparation to land because I wanted to keep reading. Funny and tender with a surprise ending, my favorite kind of book... You think you know and then you don't.
  • Captivating read !
